Subject: A fun movie for a flick that sees two people murdered
I did like the streak of decency our not so squeaky clean hero develops. A bit corny, but it WAS 1942 after all.

I watched it without regretting having done so. I might have passed on watching it if not for the comments from the other reviewers. I agree with the consensus.

Subject: Great Movie...Lots of Fun & Mystery
This is a fun movie to watch !

Dennis O'Keefe, cool as ever, aided by a Super-B Film Cast. Sort of a chopped-up copy that sometimes jumps ahead to the next scene...with no set-up. But it's well worth your time to watch it !

Both female leads (Ruth Terry: Adorable ! & Gloria Dickinson: Cool & Sultry !) are perfect !

Ya Gotta Watch This Film !

Subject: Corrupted?
Is there something wrong with the streaming and download versions of this movie?

Subject: Well..unique story
it mixes a pretty darn good mystery with some comedy and a little sappy nonsense to find Mr Big..
Enjoyable flick even though the kid (girl) is played a bit to childish in my opinion, but this is 2011 and not 1942 so my opinion doesn't count there. ;)
